    Boston Bombings

    Boston will be breathing easier this morning though it is worrying that these brothers appeared not to have been able to intergrate into mainstream society. Candace the explosion/fire has been major news here in the UK and we were sorry to hear about it.

    One of those moments

    One gust of Camino wind and the umbrella is useless. You then have to decide whether to pollute the Camino by throwing it away into the ditch (joking)or carrying a bit of dead weight till the next bin. Still, the Camino is supposed to be about character building. :roll:

    Camino Ingles - planned trip with child / July 2013

    Which Football team

    My eldest (disowned) son is a liverpool supporter and has been to Anfield. He is also a Camino pilgrim and I bought the shirt that Al talks about. It says in English, You'll never walk alone and the Spanish "No solo". I think the Spanish really should translate, Never Walk Alone, but its a...

    Worried about St Jean

    The pilgrim office at 39 rue de citadel also seem to have their finger on the pulse of what's available and they work really hard to get people sorted.

    Re: Which Soccer team 2004. In a bar in Portomarin drinking coffee, watching world cup. England 1-0 up against France with less than minutes to go. France win the game. I paid coins for the exact amount I owed and the bar man pushed some of it back towards me. I said Gracias and kept it. The...

    Where would you put a new albergue?

    In 1998 and 2004 there were two villagers who were wardens at Hornillos. In 1998 there was no bar. That night the lady warden got three pilgrims to take food orders and then drove them to a shop in the next village where they bought the supplies. They carefully recorded what money we had given...

    Re: Which Soccer team I combined my November 2012 Camino with going to see Braga at their home ground. A wonderful night that had it all. It was the coldest I have ever been at a football ground and they turned their coffee making facilities off because they could not cope with the number of...

    Camino Romance

    I met a couple in November 2012 who met on the Camino. He has now joined her in Canada from his native Australia, and we keep in contact via Facebook. I think it is going to work. I have met pilgrims who met someone on the Camino, they moved in together and it didn't work out, but that is the...
